Well, I suppose better late than never. We’ve been live for some time now and I’m just now speaking up for myself.
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is John Baird and I’m the rather vain fellow who this literary venture is named after. Plenty of good names were considered, but myself and the three other sub-editors wanted a name that was simple and easy to manipulate. A proposal to have the name be a aggregate of all our last names was nixed when we realized it made us sound like a firm of respectable tax solicitors. For right now, respectability is not very high on our list. Instead we’re focusing in getting our name out there, getting a hold of authors, and preparing even more anthology prompts. So be patient with us as we work out all the kinks and get our affairs sorted out before kicking in gear this summer.
